Want to get a jump-start in photography? This workshop is definitely for you. In five hours we'll help you forge a friendship with your digital camera, exploring its vital features and demystifying the buttons and dials that trip common users up. From controlling exposure to getting a handle on autofocus, we'll unpack these tech-heavy tools in a simple and straightforward manner. Camera Warm-Up! challenges students to learn and test their camera's essential functions by shooting in live situations, working responsively and intuitively. We want you to take control of the camera, and not the other way around!
